WEATHER FORECAST: Kilkenny braced for another big weather change
Kilkenny is bracing for more unsettled conditions, as Met Éireann has warned of a wet and windy few days ahead.
The national forecaster said today will be mostly cloudy with a little patchy drizzle at times, especially during the morning. It added: “Drizzle will become mainly confined to west and northwest coastal areas later. Otherwise dry, with a few bright spells developing, mostly in the south and east. Mild, with highest temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees, in light to moderate westerly breezes.”
Tomorrow will also be mostly cloudy with just occasional brighter spells in the east and south. Met Éireann said: “Patchy outbreaks of light rain and drizzle will occur also, mainly over the western half of the country. Maximum temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees Celsius, in mostly moderate southwest breezes, increasing fresh to strong in the northwest during the afternoon.”
Outbreaks of rain will continue to edge southeastwards over the country on Wednesday, followed by drier and clearer conditions. The national forecaster said: “Maximum temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees Celsius, mildest ahead of the rain in the southeast. Mostly moderate to fresh westerly winds.”
Current indications suggest variable cloud and some sunshine with a few showers for most on Thursday. Cloud will increase in the west and southwest, however, with patchy rain and drizzle developing in these areas and highest temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees.
Friday is set to be another breezy day with cloud and patchy drizzle giving way to sunny spells and scattered showers during the morning, with maximum temperatures ranging between 15 to 19 degrees, possibly up to 20 degrees in the south and southeast.
Current indications suggest unsettled and changeable conditions will continue into next weekend.
